Week 7, Response to Wednesday’s Class

November 8, 2007

Class provided me with a clearer understanding of some of the differences in how we approach engagement with others in our own culture and in cultures we are not native to.  It makes sense that we can play more of a prophetic role, providing counterdiscourse, in cultures from which we come than when entering a cultural context different from our own.  I wonder if this provides direction to some as they consider their calling and direction? Do some who are more gifted and drawn to  challenging norms and their own culture’s discourses, naturally lean away from some missions involvement that extends to cultures that they are not native to?
